My name is Sophia Sanico. I am a first-generation undergraduate student at Columbia College pursuing a BA in History with a specialization in 20th Century Western European History with secondary interests in African and Jewish Diaspora Histories. I am considering minoring in African and African American Studies and/or Film. In regards to Global Thought, I am especially interested in the intersection between film, history, and representation. I believe that film, as a global media platform, has the power to create and reshape our cultural and societal perspectives and therefore must be actively studied as a method of representation.
